                The hotel felt welcoming

                In spite of being upgraded I found the room too far from the main entrance and very oppressive and claustrophobic. There was no view from the window just the wall of the adjacent building. Several things in the bathroom were loose or broken as well as the security catch on one of the windows, important if you are on the ground floor as we were. I was told that I couldnt move to another room and that these were the newest rooms that had recently been refurbished!!. The room I booked for my daughters boyfriend for the second day was a cheaper room but had a view and was light and airy. I am afraid that I didnt enjoy my stay for those reasons. Although it was an upgrade I would have appreciated a cheaper room with breakfast thrown in. Breakfast is far too expensive.

                Great service at reception.got there early and still got to book in 2 hours early.Room was very clean and quite spacious.vending machines on all floors and very reasonably priced.saves on room service.Huge free car park,free use of swimming pool with towels supplied and free use of steam and sauna rooms plus gym.resteraunt and bar in hotel good and clean.food is a bit pricey but the portions are good.its a 2 minute drive from city centre and 5 min drive from the beach.would recommend to anyone travelling.especially with children.

                nothing bad with this hotel in my experiance

                The room had plenty of space

                That for 6 people and the price nothing was included no meals or breakfast

                The spacious, comfy bedroom and the lovely swimming pool.

                Value for money in terms of accommodation.

                Checked in to be told we'd been upgraded (which was nice), but got to the room with wife and 2 children to find a very small room with only 1 double bed. Went back to reception to get it changed, and then got the much larger family room we'd requested in the first place. Didn't even bother to go back yet again to request the baby cot that had been requested on the online booking...

              • Family with children
                9.2

                We have stayed here a few times now and highly recommend it. It is comfortable and friendly with the added attraction of the health club although it is a little out of town- you need a car

                My daughter and I booked in very late on Saturday night as we had to leave our own house due to noisy neighbours. The receptionist, I think he was maybe called Andrew, but I'm not certain, couldn't have been more helpful and he even gave us an upgrade which was much appreciated. We've stayed a few times before and wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

              • Family with children
                7.4

                Easy to find for visitors unfamiliar with Aberdeen Rooms were quiet and blinds thick so no early waking from sun Probably best for business visitors but we arrived late & left early so difficult to comment on facilities For us, non inclusion of breakfast in room charge was good but I would usually see this as a disadvantage Plenty of space for parking

                Grounds were in process of renovation so access was difficult!

                Location outside Aberdeen center

                Smell of cigarette smoke everywhere (inside and out). The king bed was not a king, but two twin beds pushed together, and it was hard and uncomfortable. The shower went from hot to cold to hot, etc etc, every day during my shower. No internet service provided (wireless or cable). Front entry under construction made entry and exit with or without luggage harder than normal. No luggage carts to help bring bags to the vehicle. Hotel was expensive for what was offered. Tv had limited programming options. Restaurant was overpriced and had terrible food. No electrical outlets by the bed to plug in personal items. Noise from other patrons during the night was common, making sleep difficult.

                Otium Leisure and the food was delicious.

                9.2

                upgraded an to executive suite at no extra cost. W e had a late checkout of 2pm at no extra cost and this was ideal as we were boarding a ferry to Orkney at 5pm The bar staff were especially friendly and helpful.

                Ground works going on outside the hotel made it a bit difficult to enter the building and 2 members of staff on a fag break watched me heave 2 suite cases up the steps.The 14.00 per head for breakfast is far far too expensive.

              • Family with children
                6.2

                Room was spacious and clean.

                We did not have breakfast as we thought it too expensive for a family of four.

                The use of the swiming pool was great except one of the attendant made it clear he wanted away early @ 9:30 & you were holding him up.

                the rooms were so big and roomy exellent in every way very impressed. When i saw the outside of building i was not very impressed but once inside i changed my mind. prices very good for the standard. swimming pool exellent there is also a kids small pool which is great i will definatly be back there great for a weekend. well recommended

                there wasnt any thing i didnt like it was better than i expected very happy with my choicean good prices too

                Overall it was an enjoyable stay the food was good the staff were very helpful and the room was perfect for me.The location for what I required was also Ok easy access to the motorway and to the part of Aberdeen I required & not far from the city centre too.
